with you that barack obama is one of the great candidates in american history and that explains why the democrats did so well in 2008 and 2012 -- we had a great candidate -- in 2010, when you neutralize the factor of the candidate, the republicans prevailed, which tells me that republican ideas are strong, and you have to have a candidate or a class of people that can explain it. >> that is the subject of the message to the american people, and they bought it. >> but in 2010, obamacare was a factor and it will be a factor in 2014, do you not agree? >> it might very well be, but i will point out that we have returned to the days of yesteryear when dr. krauthammer was laboring in the democratic vineyards, and the explanation was ronald reagan won because he was a superior candidate, he was engaging, likeable and charismatic, and democratic opponents were not. you have to accept that when voters vote for a candidate and a party, they know what they are doing. they are not just being bamboozled by some lapel pin or hairspray. that is frankly what they did when they elected ronald reagan
turned out in 2008, but expand on that coalition. the obama campaign had a great operation in place. while we sit back and figure when republicans will revive, between the establishment wing and the tea party wing, i am for the tea party one. keep going. i like these candidate. they make me look sane. [laughter] >> i would not exaggerate, donna. the truth of the matter is both political parties are in pretty rough shape. while the republicans have 10%, we have 30%. 2014 is important for the democratic party. we have to look at the electorate and make sure that our message and future messages will galvanize and motivate those to turn out voters as well. >> how long is the democratic party the party of barack obama? when does that shift so it goes back to the clinton era, if hillary chooses to run? when does that shift take place? >> as a president goes through a second term, interest in the president starts to go to the congressional wing of the party. what obama is trying to achieve for his legacy does not necessarily line up with what congressional democrats are interested in, in m
and as our country continues to celebrate the beginning of the second term of our great president, president barack obama. now, it's easy to take for granted the progress that we've made as a country because we are forever looking to solve today's problems and as we continue to meet tomorrow's challenges as we shape our future. but what it is, it's definitely worthwhile to take a look back at the great works of our predecessor and the brave men and women who have paved the way for progress that we enjoy here in the 21st century. and if you look around, many of those men and women are right here with us in the rotunda today. we remember the people who braved police dogs and fire hoses turned against them by their own government officials in the south, people who believed that an idea -- believed in an idea that we're all created equal and that we're willing to risk and that we're willing to risk their life in the purchase soul of a lofty promise in america. today we celebrate black history month and the catalyst to progress that the emancipation proclamation as well as the march on washingto

' movements all of that was incredibly important and the beginning of the women's movement, all that great activism they produce. whether it is the election of barack obama and continued advancement of women and congress. all of that is a direct result of their activism and that being said there is a lot of work left undone and i think that it's what we now spend. we spend our entitlement money on people who were over the age of 30 and used to be spending three-fourths of people under the age of 30 in terms of the amount of money and investment. it's not of generational warfare but i think that we need to have a conversation about how we are dividing our priorities. it's not a generation that expect to get those entitlements. not any believe the government is going to give them that money from the baby boomer generation is that and activism that has trickled down to the millennials >> guest: i think the activism of the generation was and still in the millennials, the children of the boomers as we were growing up this is a generation who read us the news and taught this idea of values and t

. but cruz says things are just going great. he told the dallas morning news, "if you look at the vote on sequester, the filibuster on drone strikes and the vote on defunding obama car, republicans have stood together for principle. and in doing so, i believe we are winning the argument." with that kind of fuzzy logic, it's no wonder the americans are running away from the party. 27% of americans can identify as republicans. that's the lowest since the beginning of 2010. and only 33% have a favorable view of the gop. but senator cruz thinks republicans are winning the argument? yikes. maybe the effort to reboot the party is just a lost cause. joining me now, ryan grim and jamal simmons. ryan, do tea party republicans really think they are winning the argument here or are they just avoiding reality as long as possible? >> well, a lot of tea party republicans don't think that the other side has an even remotely legitimate argument to bring to the table. so they think they are practically winning it by default. you know, a lot of them almost wonder what it is that these democrats are even

's movement, all that great activism they produced, and that -- all of that, we're seeing that play out today. whether it's the election of barack barack obama or continued advancement of women in congress. there's a lot of work left undone, and i think that there's -- we now spend 3/4 of our entitlement money on people who are over the age of 30. used to be we spent 3/4 on people under the age of 30. it's not a question of generational warfare, but i think we need to have a conversation about how we're dividing our priorities. this is not a generation that expects to get those entitlements. my general has any belief the government is going to give them that money -- >> host: well, the activism you talked about, from the baby-boomer generation, that activism that has trickled down to millenials or do you see them as more politically apathetic? >> guest: i think the activism of that generation was very much instilled in the millenials, the children of the boomers, as we were growing up. the generation of people who read us the news, and taught this idea of values and the way that you should be

pressing for this in the election last year. this seemed like a great issue. but the people felt that either party have anything concrete for 100 million working poor. would pick it up. president obama promised $9.50 but 2011, he never mentioned it in 2012. because he did not mention it, the democratic practice of the party was that no other candidate would mention it because that would embarrass the president. they even muzzled people like elizabeth warren and chris murphy. the state of the union speech he mentioned $9 by 2015, going backwards. so, now there are bills in congress and the one that we favor, h.r. 1346, just introduced last thursday by alan grayson from florida, and it was entitled -- catching up with 1968. 1346. host: our guest is ralph nader, the author of the book 17 solutions -- the author of the book "17 solutions." to join the conversation and speak with mr. nader, for republicans, 202-585-3881. for democrats, 202-585-3880. for independents, 202-585-3882. see theld you like to president called for in terms of minimum wage? you mentioned what he talked about n
